carpet cleaning machine for rent

Is it possible to rent a carpet cleaner for a few days? Many of the grocery stores in the US have this option, and I am wondering if it is available anywhere here.

Thank you.

It's called a Hagerty and you can rent it from any drogerie.

Re: carpet cleaning machine for rent

Can anyone tell me what is the price of renting carpet cleaning machines?

Can normal carpet cleaning liquid go into them or they need something special?

Re: carpet cleaning machine for rent

Most charge about CHF 10 per day, and they take a copy of your permit / ID.

Older machines don't suck very well because the rubber ring around the top cover is cracked & perished,
and the vacuum leaks away, but do complain and change the machine, otherwise it won't dry the carpet very well.

They usually charge about CHF 40 for the Hagerty liquid, but I found Migros carpet cleaning liquid just as good,
and much cheaper.

Re: carpet cleaning machine for rent

I always hire from the nearest Drogerie. The machine is called a Teppich Reinigungs Maschine.

Vacuum clean the carpets first.

Before I start on the carpets, I fill the reservoir with very hot water, and suck it all out, this cleans the machine. Throw away the dirty water, and start again with hand-hot water plus the shampoo liquid.

Don't get the carpet too wet!
